Make an edible centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table with this tabletop gobbler.

Adult Help Needed.

What You'll Need:


Orange slices, raisins, cranberries, carrots, celery, and other fruit you'd like to use



Place the apple on a table with the stem on the table. This is the body of the turkey. Have an adult help you cut up the fruit and vegetables you have chosen.

Then start working on your turkey. Use the toothpicks to stick the pieces onto the turkey. He needs a tail, a head, a wattle (the red thing that hangs down his neck), a beak, eyes, feet, and anything else you can think of.

Use your imagination, and don't worry if your turkey doesn't look like the real thing. It will be a wonderful decoration for your table. And you can eat your turkey for a healthy snack. (Note: Don't eat the cranberries; they are very tart.)

Turkeys, turkeys, everywhere. They will be after you make the Thanksgiving decorations on the next page.
